~Sweet Scents in the Bedroom~


We've been having the most mild Winter and it has honestly felt like Spring here lately, but unfortunately it looks like the colder wet weather is on it's way back.  I always enjoy adding fresh flowers to my home this time of year and especially to my bedroom.  My favorite combination to add to the trophies on both nightstands is eucalyptus and carnations.  They not only smell wonderful together, but both will last quite a bit longer than most blooms.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.  

The sun was shining so brightly a couple days ago and I quickly took some photos of my bedroom before it went away. 

I replaced the shutters with the sconces on either side of the bed with these wonderful leaded glass windows I found which I thought looked better in here and also because I found an old candelabra light that I added to this corner, so I didn't need the lights above the bed any longer.  I've been wanting to switch things up in my office and they will most likely end up in that room along with the mannequin that used to be in this corner. 

We bought this vintage dresser before we moved in 12 years ago and it is still my favorite piece of furniture in this room.  To see more of this part of my bedroom, click HERE


Some of my vintage French rosary collection hang from these hooks and I added some of the stock that I splurged on last week to this glass bottle and it also smells heavenly♥

Right before Christmas I replaced the large French Wicker basket with this table at the end of the bed and used a smaller French basket to hold extra pillows and blankets.

I had planned on selling this table, but the the patina is wonderful and it's a nice size for here or can be used as a coffee table down the road.....so, like many other items(which are just getting so hard to part with), this is going to be a keeper for a while!

These pansies just make me smile:-)  Enjoy your day!

  1. Your bedroom is so beautiful Kathleen! We have a small bedroom so it can't be rearranged much at all which is a bummer , but I embrace what it is anyway. Any space large or small can be made beautiful and you do it so well!! :)

  4. Oh dear me....I am devouring this room. BECAUSE I am getting ready [ Spring ] to turn my bedroom into an ALLWHITE room I have wanted for some time now. Keeping in mind my allwhite means "Shades of White". Your little skinny delightful bedside table must be a reconstruct from an old vanity..so perfect.

    You can see my initial planning post at LGH..even waaay south I still have to wait for weather changes. I expect to be referring back to your lovely room as I get started on mine. Yours has reminded me of some treasures tucked away overhead in storage.."windows" thanks for the fantastic post.

  6. I love everything about your bedroom. I especially love the little side tables. I don't think I've ever seen any this small. I really could have used these in my last house.

  10. Lovely room, however, I would want a lamp (perhaps a floor lamp) tucked in beside the bed. I love to read in my bed at night. A wonderful way to relax me to sleep.

  14. Hi Kathleen. I just love your bedroom. That little mantle is so sweet. Would you mind sharing the color of paint you used on the walls. I have had the perfect picture in my mind of a color for my dining room do-over and I think that might be the one. I love it with the white touches which will be my trim color..Thanks, and Happy Weekend..Judy

  26. Nicely done! I love the use of the iron bed frame painted white. I actually just purchased that exact same bed frame from a friend who had found it in the basement of an old cottage she had bought. If you know anything about the piece such as the year it was made or how you acquired it, i would love to know.

  30. I am looking at "Ticking and Toile's" Etsy account now. I am hoping to order this bedding. Any idea if you ordered the Shabby Chic Duvet Cover, or the French Prairie Coverlet? Also, what color - natural, oatmeal, off white? Thanks so much for your help!

    1. I think it was from the French Prairie collection and she made mine at the beginning of opening her store and used drop cloth fabric, so couldn't really tell you on the color....

  31. I've been in touch with them and they told me you got Distressed Canvas. It's strong and beautiful. They also do Daybed covers and that is what I am having her make first.
